My first thoughts were that the pic is not level and that it is underexposed somewhat.
It is also a little blurry. Some of the detail on the far banks look very interesting but I can't work out what it is.
Hope this helps?

What time of day did you take this photo? It's very difficult (read impossible without manipulation) to get detail and color in your darks (horizon in this case) when your exposure is set to the bright sky.
My recommendation would be to take this shot 15-20 minutes after sunset or before sunrise, possibly even later. Use a tripod and a nice long exposure. You'll get beautiful rich color in the sky, and you'll have color on the horizon. You will get the added effect of the water smoothing which is a nice touch.
Compositionally, make sure your horizon is level.
I took the liberty of straightening your horizon, and bumping the exposure 1.5 stops, then pushed the black a little to recover some of the detail. You can see how the horizon starts to have color and detail, yet the sky is blown. Taking the photo later will solve this issue for you.
All said above, but the basic problem is - what was your subject? You need something to act as the strong focal point of almost any image.
Again, you haven't written a description, you MUST put some text into the details area when you upload an image.
You're getting some expert advice, Wajid, which will be so helpful. I love the soft colors in the water and sky. Daves is right - we would love to know where it was taken and something about it.
A good shot with a camera phone, there is a bit of noise over most of the image which is probably because you are asking a lot of your camera. I have used Photoshop and used levels to lift the colours and contrast, then I used the gradiant tool to lighten the water and finally I just shapened it a tad in Highpass, I hope you like the mod, I see many people are being very helpful to you
Keep up the good work
Hi Wajid - I see you are having some excellent advice from lovely helpful people and there is nothing more I can add - your main problem is the "noise" but that is, as Susan has said, due to your camera phone.
When you upload, try and say what the image is of, where you took it and an approximate time of day - it makes such a difference as to how the light would be and people can advise you better. Have you had a go at using Gimp now that you have downloaded it and have some tutorial links? Or are you trying something else?
Thanks for your advise!!
Yeah i downloaded gimp and working on it !! In next photos i will try to add description!! And i dont know how to remove he noise from image?
